La Barabacoa Danza Contemporanea, in residence at PWNW in late March, is a dance group from Morelia, Mexico. Their current project, Migrant Body/Cuerpo Migrante, is a platform for reflection and research on how migration between México and the United States affects the body. How does a migratory, mobilized body affect the zones and territories it enters? How does this body affect other bodies already residing in these locations? How do the newly-encountered zones and bodies transform the migratory, recently-displaced body?
The first part of the project consists of three residences and scenic interventions in: Portland, OR; Greeley, CO., and New York. La Barbacoa will spend the first days of their PWNW residency in a process of research and investigatory interventions, both in the studio and on the streets of Portland. The public is invited to learn about the project and witness a presentation and informal performance on April 1 at 7pm.
